Birding Advent Calendar - 4th December - Pallid Harrier
Present for most of my week on Fair Isle, this juvenile Pallid Harrier put in many fly-bys as it hunted around the crofts on the southern part of Fair Isle. I had so many brief encounters with it during the first few days there that it almost became like an old friend. Then one day, just like that, it was gone.
